Why are we voting if it's a fairly arbitrary thing done at 500 non spam posts? Can't we just make more work for staff and have you promote people as and when they reach that standard?

Ninja'd :(

I'm still confused. 
 
Just answer this if you could, if I don't like a member's posts because of his/her attitude, am I allowed to vote no and explain my reasoning in the comment section (as has been the case for a long time), or do I now need to automatically vote yes because this user has 500 non-spam posts?


You can always vote however you would like, and explain that vote if you so wish. That is the point of a voting system in the first place.
However, voting no on a nominee who has met the stated requirements of the rank because you don't like their posts would be a shame.

Well, there are certain people I don't like and said I didn't like them, but voted yes anyway cause it felt selfish to vote no just cause I think they're dumber than a box of rocks.

But if 500 non-spam posts are the only requirement, why even offer a vote and cause potential "unfairness"?

For the reasons that I have stated at least twice already.

Then I suppose it won't hurt you to explain it again to the 3+ people here who are having difficulty grasping exactly what the point of voting is if we're not supposed to use our own opinions of a member.

THERE'S NO ONE TO NOMINATE CAUSE EVERYONE THAT HAS 500+ POSTS ALREADY HAS ADVANCED+. WHAT A JOKE.

Outstanding early contributions and staff might miss spammers.

Although it seems pretty easy to give a cursory glance to posts and check if they're regularly spamming or not.

But I don't care because I never vote anyway.

Clearly not if it requires a minimum of 10 people and 3 days of deliberation to figure it out.  :rolleyes:

I think a problem we're running into is that people have different interpretations of what spam is.

There are people with less than 500 posts that are deserving, you're not one of them. I still love you though.

 

 

 

-edit-

 

 

I found someone to nominate, he/she has more than 500 posts, brb.

I maintain that feminism means I have the right to do things, not that I have to do them. :p I shall spend the rest of my days barefoot in my country kitchen, avoiding non-gypsy slugs, baking for a man. BECAUSE I CAN.

I guess that's another thing that the vote and discussion is there to cover.
